An unauthorized adaptation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror remains to many viewers the most unsettling vampire film ever made! Its bald, spidery vampire, personified by the diabolical Max Schreck, continues to spawn imitations in the realm of contemporary cinema. A cornerstone of the horror genre, Nosferatu is resurrected in an HD edition mastered from a recent 35mm restoration by the Friedrich-Wilhelm-Murnau-Stiftung, backed by an orchestral performance of Hans Erdmann's 1922 score.

A Playful Approach to Writing
Kennedy Center Workshop
Wednesday, September 24, 2014, 4:00 PM
For teachers of Grades K–6
For up to 30 teachers.
Playwriting offers a powerful way to interest students in writing or pre-writing processes. Participants examine ways to help students learn how to think like playwrights and to develop a script—written or pictorial—that draws on their improvisations of characters and ideas. Workshop activities are drawn from Judith Viorst’s Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day or another work of children’s literature.

Directed by Andrzej Munk
With Edward Dziewon´ski, Barbara Polomska, Ignacy Machowski

Based on a script by Jerzy Stefan Stawin´ski, Eroica draws on its author’s first-hand experience as a soldier in the September campaign against the invading German army in 1939. Imprisoned in a POW camp, Stawin´ski escaped, participated in the Warsaw Uprising, and upon its failure was returned to another POW camp. Eroica displays the futility of the armed struggle against both Germany and Russia, while questioning the idea of heroic suffering.

Casper (Emory Cohen) and Dominic (Callan McAuliffe) have been fiercely loyal friends since childhood.
